Big Sean has been working on his moment his whole life. From the scrawny Detroit kid with a knack for spitting to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music MVP, Sean Anderson has grown into kind of a big deal and his recent bars prove it. After flying through his third album Dark Sky Paradise several times, we dug up the LP’s best lines dedicated to the grind. Straight up.
I got a lot on my mind, I got more in my face/If I ain’t going to get it, that day is going to waste
I guess it took ten years for me to be an overnight success
What you know about living check to check to living check to check to check to check?/First place, no neck and neck
And I don’t owe nobody in the world no favors/ I started from the basement, made it to the skyscrapers/ I’m a successful nigga, I got shit going on
I’m into risk and taking it/ I’m into making it then get back to making like I ain’t made it yet
